Black Milk has been dropping tracks at a nice clip these days, but most of them have been cuts that won’t be appearing on his upcoming Album Of The Year. That changes today with the release of first single “Welcome (Gotta Go).” While a lot of singles these days are all about going for summer jam status, Black Milk comes cold with this one, rapping high energy over a bed of frosty organ tracks and a stuttering synth-bass part. It’s all topped off by a lazily floating layer of choral vocals in the background. When he says “gotta go,” it’s more of a desperate imperative than a rallying cry. Give it a listen below.
Album Of The Year is due out on Sep. 14 via Fat Beats/Decon.
